Never mind that there is no official statement yet. What interests me is the double-edged statement of the PLO's Saeb Erekat that refers to "the PLO’s political program, whose starting point is the two-state solution in the 1967 borders ." Get it, folks? The PLO has a "program" that "starts" with the 2-state solution, i.e. it doesn't *end* with the 2-state solution. One has to be a complete ignoramus regarding the conflict or else in total denial to not recognize that Erekat was referring to the PLO's infamous Plan of Stages, which calls for accepting a 2-state solution as the first stage of a program to annihilate Israel as the Arab side gains in military, economic, and territorial strength. Of course, Arafat made this all clear from the beginning of Oslo in 1993, but most people didn't want to listen then either. No doubt Erekat's reference will go unnoticed by the press and most readers. But let no one claim that the PLO didn't reveal their evil intentions in asking for a 2-state solution.
